Compass Community Services
Virtual - Based out of Guelph

This is a remote volunteer position supporting the Guelph-Wellington Community. All shifts and training are completed remotely, therefore, residence in Guelph-Wellington is not a requirement for this position.
 
Compass is recruiting skilled and compassionate volunteers to join our Telephone Support Team (TSP). Volunteers involved in the TSP will assume the responsibility of providing outbound calls to clients, with the goal of providing emotional support to members of the Guelph-Wellington Community. TSP Volunteers will start in the program by completing social calls, safety/wellness checks, and/or providing medication reminders to isolated and distressed individuals before having the option to gain additional training and supporting our Distress Lines.

Callers on the Distress Line may be in a state of crisis, experiencing suicidal ideation, or have intentions of harming themselves or another individual. They may also be seeking external resources and referrals to agencies or are looking for a safe space to disclose personal struggles. Volunteers will use their discretion to identify how each client should be supported and will have access to staff supervision should any questions or concerns arise.

The Telephone Support team strives to meet the diverse needs of each client allowing opportunities to engage in conversations surrounding daily plans, storytelling, and exploring action plans to prepare for crisis intervention. Each call is made using a strengths-based and solution-focused approach with the common objective of assisting with goal planning, increasing the client’s ability to cope with unique situations, and referrals to community resources.

Responsibilities

•    Complete inbound and outbound calls with service users
•    Complete safety/wellness checks, provide medication reminders, and engage in social conversations with a diverse group of people
•    Assist with crisis intervention, when presented
•    Engage in conversations with members of the LGBTQ+ community through the texting support line

    Ontario Caregiver Organization, Online Services/Find Support

    Mentoring is a method of passing on lived experiences to support another caregiver in an empowering and meaningful way. Anyone who has been a caregiver will know that the caregiving role presents many challenges. These challenges will be different for every caregiver and from time to time support will be needed. A Peer Mentor has a wealth of experience and knowledge which can help another caregiver with the challenges of their caregiving situation. Caregivers share a common identity and can create a bond through sharing their experiences. You can easily connect by phone or by online/virtual discussion with your Caregiver Participant without leaving your home. An OCO trained peer mentor will:
  • ‘Just be there’/Listen
  • Provide encouragement, support and acceptance
  • Acknowledge a caregiver’s strengths
  • Share lived experience and give real life examples
  • Discuss a caregiver’s wellbeing
  • Provide support with developing coping strategies
  • Provide relevant information
  • Provide support to set goals the caregiver identifies
  • Celebrate any goals the caregiver achieves
  • Be someone for a caregiver to bounce ideas of
  • The Ontario Caregiver Organization invites caregivers with diverse backgrounds from across Ontario to join our 1:1 Peer Support Program as a Peer Mentor. We are actively recruiting bilingual or multilingual caregivers who are fluent in English and also other languages.

    Butt Blitz Volunteer   Bruce County  Grey County  Muskoka District  Northumberland County  Parry Sound District  Peterborough County  Simcoe County 
    A Greener Future

    In 2015, we ran our first ever Butt Blitz — an action-oriented campaign focused on raising public awareness about cigarette litter, while simultaneously removing as much of it from the environment as possible.   

    Cigarette butts account for 1 in 5 pieces of litter found at our cleanups. These small plastic filters are one of the most common forms of litter globally and when not disposed of properly, they cause negative impacts on local ecosystems, wildlife, and human health.  

    We’re calling on volunteers from across Canada to pick up cigarette butts in their local communities, then send them to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. The social impact of this event is just as important as the environmental impact, as it helps prevent cigarette butt litter from ending up on the ground in the future!   

    We are looking for Butt Blitz Volunteers in communities across Canada to join us in picking up butts locally throughout the month of April. Join a local team, or take part wherever you are!  

    The Butt Blitz will run from April 1st to 30th, 2023. Our goal is to collect and remove 1 million cigarette butts over the course of a month!   

    As a Butt Blitz Volunteer, you are dedicating your time throughout April to help reduce the amount of cigarette litter in your local community and create a safer, healthier environment.   

    All you need to participate is a pair of gloves, an up-cycled container (e.g., old yogurt tub) to collect your butts in, and an interest to improve your local environment!   

    Volunteer Responsibilities: - Review and understand the Butt Blitz Volunteer Information Package - Sign a virtual Liability Waiver - Participate in cigarette litter cleanups to contribute to the overall goal of removing 1 million cigarette butts - Drop off your cigarette butt collection to a local team coordinator (or mail in your own collection if participating independently) - Attend virtual team meetings via Zoom (optional; 3 in total, max 30 minutes in length) - Attend a team Butt Blitz cleanup locally (optional)   If this opportunity interests you, please fill out the form below!   

    All participants must be 19+ (18+ in Alberta or Quebec)  

    Apply Here.
